    As much as I like gold , this outfit has some major read flags it 's overseas no way to collect if they send you fakes you have to register to even see prices .. I see nothing that says they will buy back their own product at a fair retail price if you want to sell when the price goes up .. and to sell such a product to another retailer may require you paying a stiff assaying fee .

    Warning warning will Robertson

    red flag only three posts and two of those are trying to buy something on the trader .

    here is a review of Karatbars http://factsaboutinternetmarketing.c...itters-is-gold

    http://ethanvanderbuilt.com/2014/09/...in-my-opinion/

    http://hotmlmcompanies.com/karatbars...tional-review/ great multi level marking opportunity but the consumer is paying way way more than they should.

    High ratings if you are looking to scam people https://bestcompany.com/mlm/company/...international/

    this is all about preying on ignorance and over charging while lining your pockets at other's expense, and they offer great training on how to do it top opportunity for making bucks off other people while screwing them over...

    Can't recommend the product , but if you have no conscience the program looks like a helluva deal. Be good way to get back at Nigerians that sent you those email scams ...

    Default the war on cash

    I don't know if anybody brought this up but look at the twenty in your wallet and then try to remember how many times it has changed in the last twenty years? New color inks, security strips, new designs, etc. Now ask yourself who is one of largest counterfeiters in world? North Korea comes to mind or the Russian mob. And that is why there is a war on cash. Counterfeiters with laser printers, high quality linen paper and
    A illicit network to distribute counterfeit notes.

    Absolutely correct! But you do leave out some of the really big players: Major Intelligence Agencies (insert your favorite) who print their own to finance their operations. To have everyone use "plastic money" is their combined goal. That way they can destroy their targets' wealth with electronic warfare in cyberspace.

    I am pretty sure that most of the counterfeit US currency is overseas. The bad stuff gets passed here and falls apart, the better stuff gets caught sooner or later at the bank or by store managers with a good eye. I am sure there are databases of the info on all examples, so it will hurt those in other countries that horde it. I would bet that those that horde it are on the fence between lawful and illegal, if not all the way illegal. Maybe they should buy gold if they really want to have something.

    Ever seen Swiss currency? Maybe if we put that kind of effort into it we'd have fewer counterfeiting issues.

    Easier to control people if you control the means of exchange for goods and services. By taking away the means of "anonymous" exchange the people become more reliant and subserviant.

    Another reason to own precious metals and maybe even other forms of "currency" (i.e. Bitcoin)

    That might cut down on employee till theft as well as armed robberies. I remember some gas stations that were for prepaid use only - no attendant. A fleet bought when gas was low and used it all year - or until thier purchase ran out.

    Interesting! But contrary to law. Look at any US paper money and you will see this "This note is legal tender for all debts, public and private". Legalese for 'If offered in payment, US paper money MUST be accepted!' We had a similar kind of chain store in my area, 40 years ago, CREDIT CARDS ONLY, but somebody court cased them and they had to comply with the law.

    Remember CA is under the 9th Circuit Court and they look at things differently .

    EXACTLY! The Lunatic Liberal 9th has often espoused the most contrary to the US Constitution decisions. A friend of mine who was (now deceased) a Federal Judge, confided to me that he had to use the most precise and carefully crafted language to get a (******) murderer into the BIG HOUSE, for fear of some Looney higher up the totem pole judge would order his release on some flimsy excuse!

    I always though...this:
    With little effort an RF strip could be inserted between the cotton threads an payments in large quantities of military, government paid out to MR X? Trackable to the dollar ....in distribution location, journey country?

    They are also concealing a huge debt and have picked the wrong time to ask for federal bailouts.

    IF the govt gradually removed cash from society it would be to tax every transaction. Doubtful they would as an underground trade possibly using other representations of value will emerge.
    Counterfeit money only generates more tax for govt. They make a small stink about it to prop up the perceived value of the dollar.
    If no one believes paper money has value then it doesn't.
    Stock piling bullion in case of a crash doesn't make much sense, I'd rather have stockpiled firearms, ammo and lots of non perishable food. Like anything if you tell just one person of your shock pile, many others will soon learn of it and can raid it if desperate. Stockpiles must be only known to you.
    Money now is mostly virtual, just pixels on a computer screen. Perceived value is all it has.

    I hear this a lot.. I would rather have guns than gold .. or food than gold anything rather than gold...

    why can't you have all three guns, gold, and food?

    I get that gold is a skill as much as a metal how you determine value , but and sell and trade with gold is a very specialized skill.. but it is learnable and I agree without the skill and knowledge gold is useless to some people.

    But everything s like that.. look at the buckets of convenient freeze dried food .. if you follow the instructions or advertisements you will died of starvation or malnutrition if you don't have the knowledge , heck you could shoot your own eye out with a BB gun if you aren't careful ..

    I would rather have both gold and guns and every other tool and survival aid I know how to use.

    No man fears to do what he knows how to do.

    And are you saying folks will comes and steal your gold , but not your guns and ammo and food? especially if so many would rather have guns than gold?

    Next you will be telling me you can't eat gold, but guns are yummy if you marinade them long enough..

    A friend just sent me this. Maybe some things of numismatic value in it all as well as the cash value but I'm too burnt this week to chase after it (and the neighborhood isn't the best - may be a scam). If you live in SF go for it.

    Considering that I'm usually the only one paying cash for anything wherever I go, I think the "war on Cash" is already over, and Plastic won. Only old people like me still use cash.
